Task Description

Allow a player to control (some) weapons on another player's ship,
making him a gunman

The details of this idea still need to be worked out.

32srcPlanned FeatureHighMaster ServerNew
0%
Task Description

Master server and multiplayer server list.

36corePlanned FeatureHighPlayer signalsNew
0%
Task Description

Implement a system where players can send arbitrary signals to each other
(arbitrary, from the point of view of the network protocol). This would be used
to send trade and docking requests, and to replace the silly 'hail' command
with a 'request for private chat'.

In the future this could also be used for other signals, like players declaring
their hostile intent.

It might also be possible to use the signals mechanism
to exchange targetting info.

108dataRequired MediaHighModel: pirate baseNew
10%
Task Description

Pirate base models, to serve as NPC headquarters.
Several generic models are required.

17srcPlanned FeatureMediumTractor beam effectNew
0%
Task Description

Implement beam particles for tractoring cargo.

The tracktor beam is currently completely server-side,
this will require additional engine infrastructure or a hack.

Instead of 'beams' a general 'effect' could be created.
It is possible to create an entity holding a model with
a particle system (like projectiles) representing the 'beam-in'
effect (think star trek transporters).

On the other hand, implementing beam style would open the door
for beam weapons.

24dataPlanned FeatureMediumWeapon ModelsNew
10%
Task Description

Models for cannons and turrets to be used in the trade menu.

Task Description

Add client support for playing background music.It should be possible to define a number of audio tracks per zone,
for the intro, and make provisions for 'battle music'. Investigate support for FLAC, OGG and MP3 audio formats.

41renderFeature RequestMediumLOD entity keys + Automatic patch LODNew
0%
Task Description

The engine needs a way to be able to use a LOD system for performance reasons. I propose a method for this: all brush entities(except worldspawn and misc_model) will have a 'lod' key. The existence of this key in the entity(as in, if it's actually set) tells the engine to enable LOD on the entity. The value for the LOD key would be an integer of 0 through 3. A value of 3 tells the engine to only render the brushes at 75% and above of the detail LOD distance. A value of 2 renders at 50-75%. A value of 1 renders at 25-50%. 0 renders at 0-25% distance. If the key is not set, the brushes will render at all distances(unless set to detail).

This allows two things: Patch meshes get LOD, and LOD gradually degrades with distance.

An alternative would be in patch loading. At model load, bake 4 levels of LOD for the patch meshes into the model, and apply the same rules as above. This may not be desirable because some patch meshes may be required to stay at full LOD for specific reasons.

The only downside to this is that it requires more memory to store the LOD models, but it would cut down on polygon count at render time significantly.

43dataRequired MediaMediumModel: Unfinished JumpgateNew
0%
Task Description

Use: The unfinished jumpgates between Finnmark and Kronenbaden.

92srcFeature RequestMediumClean up of material, light, flare and particle color ...New
0%
Task Description

Clean up and homogenize material, light, flare, engine and particle color types and flags.

Those fx can be triggered by engine states (trigger_impulse, trigger_engine, trigger_destroyed, ..)
The color can be set as color_entity, color_entity_second, color_entity_third, color_engine, ...

TODO
- review/refactor: lights, flares, materials, and particles should have the some options for
triggers and colortypes.
The parameter names in .map file classes and .material files should be the same

96srcBug ReportMediumProblems while docked at another player's shipNew
0%
Task Description

The following issues appear if you're docked at another player's ship

TODO

- If the host docks a planet or a large base and you launch, you'll spawn inside the planet.
- Space dust isn't rendered if the host moves
- Correct undefinied behaviour if the host gets destroyed, docks should be destroyed as well

- Note: In theory, recursivedocking should work (player A docked at B docked at C),
issues should be resolved accordingly

4renderPlanned FeatureLowZ-Fail Stencil ShadowsNew
0%
Task Description

If a real-time shadowing method is to be used, sharp stencil shadows would be more in-line with the game's visual style. It apparently can be done with very little code.

0%
Task Description

Symptom: When rotating the ship, cubemap reflections are not rotated in effect, and stay in the default rotation axis.

12renderFeature RequestLowLight Flare OcclusionNew
0%
Task Description

Having light flares occlude behind objects would allow more detailed flares to be used. The following is a screenshot from Mass Effect, and is the back of the Normandy:
http://www.bioware.com/_commonext/images/me/screenshots/dlc/masseffect_01_1280x760.jpg

If this were tried in Osirion with a regular light entity and a similar flare texture, it would be partially visible from behind surfaces, which is not the desired effect as the light shouldn't be making a flare if it's seen from behind a wall. This is also the reason why most of the flares in Osirion are circular, because a horizontal flare(also known as the 'film-style' flare) is too difficult to get right when it can move in all angles.

In the end, this might actually lower performance a tiny bit because each flare has to be checked if it's behind a surface, but if a flare is completely blocked, it shouldn't render at all which would make up for the loss.

Q3 has several methods of doing this, including a timed fade, real fade, and instant.

Timed fade: when a flare becomes visible, begin rendering the quad and slowly increase its size and alpha from 0 until it reaches the size indicated by the entity. The rate of size increase is based on a simple timer.
Real fade: like timed fade, begin rendering the quad once visible but instead of using a fixed timer, only increase the size and alpha depending on how much of the flare is in view. I believe this is done via the size indicated in the entity, and is based on how much of it at its full size is visible(I'm guessing an invisible quad at max size is used to test this). This method is best because it can be tweaked to allow the flare to overlap the surfaces in front of it by a small amount, making it look very realistic.
Instant: the flare is instantly visible at max size and alpha as soon as the light entity's origin is visible by the camera.

13clientFeature RequestLowSupport for non us-qwerty keyboard layouts.New
0%
Task Description

Right now the client keyboard input code is hardwired
to a US-QWERTY layout. It should use the native keyboard
layout of the user.

At the same time, the code should be tested for UTF8.

16coreBug ReportLowsay doesn't work on dedicated servers.New
0%
Task Description

Since the 'say' chat command is now used to chat in the current zone,
it become useless on dedicated servers because the console does
not have a current system.

There are several ways to solve this:
- Have say behave like shout
- Add an extra parameter to say to indicate the zone to chat in
- Provide a way for the console to set the current zone

Iron commodity model.

60srcFeature RequestLowThrust Point EntitiesNew
0%
Task Description

For finer control of the ship, thrust points should be defined. Instead of the ship being pushed from its origin point, thrust entities would define where the force against the ship is coming from. This would allow for more realistic control.

If more than one entity is used, the thrust power is split between them, or defined by percentage specifically with entity keys.

77dataRequired MediaLowBetter fontsNew
0%
Task Description

Osirion needs some better fonts besides the ugly monospaced font it uses right now. Perhaps the current font should just be used for the console?

I recommend this font as it's licensed under the CC and doesn't look half bad:

93renderFeature RequestLowAllow currently loaded skybox to be bound as a texture.New
0%
Task Description

We need this in order to clean up the material drawing(specifically the environment mapping section). This could also possibly enable us to use the skybox cubemap for nice reflection effects.

0%
Task Description

Implement administrative commands. Players should be able to receive
and 'admin level' enabling them to execute special administrative commands.
Those commands should still be available to the console.

The admin level is unrelated to the in-game player level.

56clientBug ReportMediumExtremely slow to load.Assigned
10%
Task Description

Windows is extremely slow to load compared to other platforms.

$time ./src/osirion +connect +quit

Linux: 3.3 seconds
Windows: 23.7 seconds

This may be related to the binaries being produced via mingw:

http://osdir.com/ml/gnu.mingw.msys/2006-03/msg00024.html

The best solution is to probably use a Visual C++ toolchain for windows binaries.

5coreBug ReportLow'give ship x' while moving makes player unable to contr...Assigned
0%
Task Description

At random, if you use 'give ship' while your ship is moving, you can be trapped in a state where you cannot turn or move in any direction. You are still given the new ship, however, and if you use 'give ship' a few more times, you can recover from the problem.

Leaving this as low-priority since 'give ship' is technically a cheat. Setting this as category 'src' because the cause is unknown.
